Huawei has two series of smartphones that we can define as "premium", namely the P series and the Mate series. Recently, the Shenzhen giant officially launched the new P40 series phones, while the next generation Mate series phones will be launched in the second half of the year.
However, in the last few hours, an indiscretion has emerged that would report a change in strategy by the Chinese company. According to what was leaked online, in fact, Huawei is considering the possibility of "Resurrect" the Mate S line of phones. Indeed, according to rumors, the Asian company could launch a new top-of-the-range Mate series smartphone in China next month, which will be a different product compared to those seen in the Mate 40 series.
Although not much is known about the smartphone in question, it seems that the phone is the successor of Huawei Mate S. As readers of OutofBit will remember, the smartphone Huawei Mate S was launched in September 2015, with an all-metal body and technical specifications that were certainly top of the range at the time of officialdom.
Similarly to what has been seen with other company's flagship devices, it is easy to imagine that the next smartphone will be powered with a Kirin processor from Huawei. The most accepted hypothesis that the Chinese company opts for a Kirin 990 5G, although some clues lead to the next Kirin 1020.
Given that the Chinese company is planning to launch the flagship smartphone of the Huawei Mate 40 series by the end of the year (with Kirin 1020 and FreeFrom Lens, ed), it remains to be understood the timing of launch of the alleged Mate S.
In addition to the Mate 40 series, the company will also launch another folding smartphone later this year, which will be the successor of the Mate X: most likely the name chosen by the company based in Shenzhen Huawei Mate X2, but confirmations are awaited.
